LORD RANGANATHA OF SRIRANGAPATTANA

ANTIQUITY

The origin of Srirangapattana strangely enough is linked up with the river Cauvery and it is her priceless gift to the nation, and it is purely her creation - emerged out of her devotion to the Lord of Vaikuntha - Sri Mahavishnu. As the story goes the Cauvery flowing from Talakaveri - its source and reaching the Bay of Bengal is in fact the Ganges flowing here at the bidding of Kasi Viswanath. It has an interesting story and is imbued with divinity. Tradition narrates that there visited a severe drought in the Dravidadesa in the dim past and lasted for 12 long years. As there were no rains for over such a long period, the suffering experienced both by man and beast was excruciating. Not a drop of water anywhere and so beasts died like flies. The scenes of parched lands, dried up water sources, striking greenlessness, hot winds were pathetic and humans also perished in great numbers. Neither the kings, nor the institutions did anything to bring rain that could avert this disaster.
